  • DeCarlo Rules: What I don't understand is why they're trying to discourage subscriptions to B&V FRIENDS Jumbo digest. It's been published at 10 times per year frequency for the last 3 years -- just like the other B&V jumbo digest. So if they're both published just as often, why do they offer a choice of 10 issue or 20 issue subscriptions for BETTY & VERONICA, but only a 6 issue subscription for B&V FRIENDS? You can get a 12-issue subscription to B&V FRIENDS on the website, but if I remember correctly, the printed ad for subs only offers the 6-issue sub option. Why isn't it the same option as the other digests (10 issues or 20 issues), if they're all published 10 times a year? And they ARE.

  • Tuxedo Mark: Just looked at Archie Comics' subsciption page. Archie Meets Batman '66 is a six-issue miniseries. Archie 1941 is a five-issue miniseries. There's a six-issue subscription for Betty and Veronica: Friends Forever and Vixens (surprisingly; might get transferred to the new B&V title) and a twelve-issue subscription for Riverdale. Riverdale Digest isn't listed, so it looks like it's been cancelled.

  • CAPalace: I'm a woman btw and I'm just so sick of the blatant anti-men thing going on in comics these days. It's not doing women any favors either. :/
    July 09, 2018, 09:05:40 PM
  • CAPalace: They're banking on Archie 700 to sell a lot because "lol a new number wow lol" and it will for the first issue but it'll just go back to the average/poor numbers it had before. And YOU KNOW with that writer on B+V it's going to turn into an anti-men, oooh girl power lol violence against men and demeaning men is feminism and fun lol lol Good luck. I'll stick to Ebay to find the DeCarlo stuff thanks.

  • Tuxedo Mark: I'm looking forward to the new B&V series. Personally, I think that previous B&V series by what's-his-name was way worse than anything that Rotante wrote on Vixens.
    July 09, 2018, 08:43:47 PM
  • DeCarlo Rules: So, so predictable... they love to exploit NUMBERS, whether it's a single digit (1 or 0) or a triple-digit ending in 00. Good lord, I can't believe they're actually giving Jamie Rotante ANOTHER B&V series to write ruin! She is the worst I've read -- although it's a tough call, Marguerite Bennett was pretty horrible as well. Nick Spencer can actually be quite good as a writer... or pretty bad, depending on the character and the direction. He was great on ANT-MAN and SUPERIOR FOES OF SPIDER-MAN (both books that had a strong humorous subtext), and not so hot on CAPTAIN AMERICA and THE AVENGERS. And he's he new writer on (yet another) first issue of THE AMAZING SPIDER-MAN, so I wouldn't guess the ARCHIE gig will last. ACP could probably only afford to hire him for that ONE issue, #700.

    July 05, 2018, 03:09:04 AM

    July 05, 2018, 12:14:16 AM
  • DeCarlo Rules: So both ARCHIE and RIVERDALE are "on hiatus"? That means ACP has no ongoing floppy comic titles. Not a good sign. Good thing they still have the digests going (knock on wood).

How did you enjoy Betty and Veronica Vixens?

I was a little underwhelmed by it. I still have more interest in it than things like the New Riverdale ARCHIE or B&V by Adam Hughes, but I didn't like it as much as JUGHEAD #8-16, though I'll give it a few more issues. I don't really expect it to run more than 6 or 8 issues, anyway.


How was the Sugarplum story in Archie and Me?

It's not really what I'd call a Sugarplum story. She's IN it, briefly, but it's really another Jingles story. The gist of the plot here is that Sugarplum used her magic powers to remove Jingles' own magical abilities as a brownie, so now he has to mooch off Archie until he figures out some way that he can get Sugarplum to restore his powers. As for why Sugarplum would do that to Jingles, he says it's because he was dating a friend of Sugarplum's, but then he started dating someone else, and Sugarplum found out about it. There's no reference made to those stories from less than a decade ago, where Sugarplum and Jingles (in their human guises as Susan and Jimmy) actually dated each other.

WEEK OF 11-29-17:

FRANKENSTEIN [by Dick Briefer], in:
 * PRIZE COMICS #7 (Dec 1940) to #44 (Aug 1944) [8 pages each = 288 pages]
 * FRANKENSTEIN #18 (Mar 1952) to #33 (Nov 1954) [230 pages]

Wow, what a wild ride. Frankenstein... the novel, the movies, the creator of life OR the monster he created, have always fascinated me, and every few years I find myself returning to the Frankenstein mythos with renewed enthusiasm. Frankenstein's monster would seem like an unlikely protagonist for an ongoing comic book feature, especially since in both of Briefer's versions he's an unrelenting murdererous maniac with a deep-rooted hatred for all mankind. Those were two completely unrelated different versions of Frankenstein's Monster (and Briefer also did a third, humorous version as well -- which appeared in both Prize Comics #45 to #68, and concurrently in the first 17 issues of Frankenstein, from mid-1944 to the end of 1948). Hard to decide which one I liked better, but the WWII version was possibly a little more outrageous and surprising in its inventiveness. In the later early-1950s self-titled comic book, the monster never speaks, like his Universal Pictures counterpart, but in the Prize Comics series, he's an articulate and intelligent fiend, like the monster in Mary Shelley's original novel. Unlike most comics of the era, there's actually a loose continuity connecting the Frankenstein stories in Prize Comics. From 1943 to 1944, the Prize Comics Frankenstein feature took some strange turns. Finally captured and put on trial for his crimes against humanity in the August 1943 issue, the case for the Frankenstein monster is argued by a scientist, one Professor Carrol, who successfully pleads his case and is allowed to reform the monster in a social experiment using drugs and therapy; the monster is given new clothes, plastic surgery, and even attends grade school briefly, before becoming a wartime production factory worker -- but all of this is just a prelude to the Monster being kidnapped and brainwashed by the Nazis and turned into a Gestapo SS enforcer! My mind boggles at the thought of Universal Pictures' Frankenstein's Monster ever taking such an original tangent. But the whole thing with the arch-evil villain reforming... how often did that happen in 1940s comics (or any other decade's, for that matter)?? As an odd ending to his career in comics, after the Comics Code Authority put the kibosh on the '50s horror-comics boom, artist/writer Dick Briefer found new work for a couple of years in the mid-50s drawing dozens of Jughead stories for Archie Comics, before moving on, more or less permanently, to the more lucrative (or at least more stable) world of advertising art for the rest of his life.
